I did wonder what they were doing with this, figured it'd just have been a lick of paint - Looks very slick without losing too much of the brutalist touch.

Architect named on £110m Factory Theatre
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news...-110m-factory/

Quote:
Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture has won the international competition to design The Factory in Manchester, a new arts centre for the city at the former ITV Granada site.
The project will be OMA’s first major public building in the UK.

The government has agreed revenue funding for the project of £9m each year from 2018/19 as part of its Spending Review announced today.

The construction of The Factory is part of the £1.2bn plans for the St John’s neighbourhood, which will see the delivery of up to 3,000 residential units, 600,000 sq ft of workspace, and a mix of hotels and cultural buildings. The scheme is being delivered by Allied London and Manchester City Council.

When is it estimated that Middlewood Locks will be complete? Also, when is the Mayfield project expected to reach completion? Furthermore, in about five years time give or take a year does anybody have any ideas as to how Manchester will look and feel?

"Peel PRS scheme to rename Pomona as Manchester Waters"...

Quote:
Peel Group is in advanced talks with an institutional investor to fund the roll-out of private rented sector apartments across its vast nationwide portfolio starting with up to 3,000 flats on Pomona Island in Trafford, which would be renamed Manchester Waters.

The identity of the prospective joint venture partner has not been revealed but is understood to be a UK institutional investor.

At 22 acres, Pomona Island is one of the largest cleared development areas in and around Manchester city centre. The land forms a long flat narrow strip between the Bridgewater Canal and Manchester Ship Canal. Residents’ groups have campaigned for its retention as green open space and strongly opposed the recent Rowlinson and Peel joint application to build 164 flats at the St George’s Island end of Pomona. The application was granted consent earlier this month...

Quote:
A NORTH West-based textiles company is investing £5.8m to bring cotton spinning back to its spiritual home in Greater Manchester.

More than 100 new jobs will be created by the project, which will regenerate a former Victorian cotton mill in Tameside and use cutting-edge technology to produce luxury yarn for domestic and global markets.

English Fine Cottons, a trading arm of Culimeta-Saveguard Ltd, is investing £4.8m of its own money in the project, £2m of which is a loan from the Greater Manch....

Amazon to create 1,500 jobs by opening huge warehouse at Airport City
MEN: http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....-city-10543349

Quote:
The internet retail giant plans to occupy a substantial space at Airport City south in Wythenshawe - the £800m business, hotel and industrial space being built around the hub.

Online giant Amazon is set to move into a huge warehouse at Wythenshawe’s Airport City - bringing 1,500 jobs to the region.

The retailer, the biggest internet seller in the USA, plans to occupy a massive space - 654,000 square feet - in Airport City south - the £800m business, hotel and industrial space being built around the hub.

Mike Kane, Wythenshawe MP, said the move would place Wythenshawe ‘at the heart’ of the Northern Powerhouse - and bring jobs to the community.

He said: “I’m genuinely elated. Amazon will be a massive anchor tenant for the region.

“It’s really good news for the Airport City development, south Manchester as a whole and our wider vision for the area.

A 260,000 sq ft warehouse is already under construction after Manchester Airports Group and logistics specialist Stoford were granted planning permission. But Amazon has applied to extend the floor space with internal floors, taking it to 654,000 sq ft.

This is in addition to a 42,840 sq ft office and a 120,000 sq ft car park.

The Amazon plan follows DHL’s arrival at Airport City South. They opened a 37,308 sq ft warehouse in October 2014. The company now operates a daily freight flight from Leipzig to Manchester.
